I've also noticed if you mess with anything the bubbles/foam touches you can decrease the amount of skimmate going into the collection cup.

It doesn't make sense to me, but so far the more air/bubbles in the skimmer water column, the less micro bubbles in my tank. Although weak thin skimmate is the result.

Yes, I've been moving between open tube, plastic airflow valve, and a brass air valve, trying to figure out whats doing what.

Changing how much air enters the Skimmer will not help.
